I went around this one.

Just reconnaisance. I will have to come back better prepared, and claim it on the corbett round. I can't claim it from there, so I refrained from ticking it. St. Peter would ask: Why did you tick the Cobbler and you didn't climb to the summit. It would be like cheating in the olympics. This is the one tricky corbett. I am still alive though.

I came back to the carpark just after dark, then I had some fish and chips in Arrochar.

A very interesting day that I will gladly repeat.
